Healthy & Easy Berry Smoothie Recipe/Tutorial

I love fruit smoothies, and the one I make the most is a mixed berry medley of Strawberries, Blueberries, and Raspberries. You can of course use whatever fruit you want, but I have found that frozen usually work best. You can also thr ow in some nuts, wheat germ or oats to give it some added fiber.

Here is the list of ingredients I use in mine that usually fills a little over two large glasses.

~ Roughly 2 cups of  Orange Juice ( I like to use the kind with added Vitamins and Calcium)
~ Two yogurts  ( any brand, I just don't like fat free or low fat due to them containing more sugar and being too watery)
~ 2 cups of Frozen berries
~ Cup of ice

Watch my video here for step by step instructions.

  1. This does sound/look tasty.

    I gather you have just one glassful as a serving per meal?

    I used to enter the three ingredients. Your two glassfuls yield:

    787 calories
    153g carbs
    21g protein
    12g fat
    24g fiber
    139% of DV Calcium

    I used these brands and quantities for the calculations:

    Trader Joe's Fancy Berry Medley - Frozen Fruit, 2 cup (140 gm)
    Florida's Natural Orange Juice Premium - With Calcium & Vitamin D - No Pulp, 16 fl. oz. (240 ml)
    Yoplait - Creamy Original - Berry Bliss, 350 g
